Fire Damage Clean up & Restoration
There is nothing more traumatic than a fire in your home or business.
A fire can can move at such rapid ferocity in a premises it turn a family’s life upside down or bring a business to a grinding halt.
The first 24 to 48 hours after fire damage are the most crucial. The acidic soot and smoke damage that is commonly produced when fires are extinguished accelerates the deterioration and corrosion of structural areas and contents.
To make things worse, fires are most frequently extinguished with dry chemicals or water – often compounding the problem and creating toxic smoke and odours that are left behind; needing to be neutralised.
The fire damage restoration process includes the mitigating of damage, providing smoke and soot damage clean up, odour neutralisation ozone treatment and water restoration (if required) after the damage first occurs and as quickly as possible.
Apart from the evident visual structural damage, contents within the premises must be evaluated for recovery based on whether they are restorable or non salvageable.
Standard procedures are as follows:
- Step 1: Inspection and fire damage assessment; including scope of works
- Step 2: Water removal and drying (if water damage is present after extinguishing)
- Step 3: Removal of smoke and soot from all surfaces
- Step 4: Cleaning and repair
- Step 5: Restoration
